The 10th edition of the Best of Nollywood Awards (BON) held Friday at the Kakanfo Conference Centre in Ibadan, Oyo.

Nollywood stars thronged the ceremony; from Segun Arinze, Nobert Young, Yemi Solade, Fathia Balogun, Femi Branch, Dayo Amusa to Liz DaSilva and Judith Audu.

On the award front, Tope Oshin’s queer, young-adult film We Don’t Live Here Anymore, which was nominated in ten categories, won Best Movie of the Year.
